ABOUT THE LIONS
The Lions Motto is “We Serve." For 89 years our Club's members have followed this mandate through the creation and support of a wide variety of facilities and service projects.
While Sight is the major institutional goal of Lionism, our bylaws also direct us to take an active interest in the Civic, Cultural, Social and Moral Welfare of our community.
We welcome membership interest from any man or woman of legal majority, good moral character and community reputation who recognizes Lions as a vehicle through which they can make a contribution to the community, expand their acquaintances and make some wonderful friends.
The Lions are the largest service club organization in the world with over 1.3 million members. The members of our club represent all walks of life: employees, business people and retirees - male and female members. Though we come from every corner of the social, economic and religious spectrum, we are united in our desire to provide aid and support to those in our community who are in need. If you are motivated to offer help to your neighbors who can benefit from it, you will find many opportunities for personal fulfillment by joining with us.

2015 Lions Pancake Breakfast
We served up our annual Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, May 16th, just prior to the longest running Armed Forces Day Parade in the U.S. The skies may have been cloudy but no clouds were visible among the hungry patrons and scurrying Lions. Smiles and stories abounded as the pancakes and sausages disappeared. OK, some of the Lions did have some serious faces as they concentrated on their batter. All in all, a great morning for all ... all the time.
District 19-C Convention
Here are a few images from the District 19-C Convention, held on March 13-14 at the LaQuinta Inn and Suites in Tacoma. Some of the skits and performances on Fun Night were very impressive, and some just hilarious. Those seen addressing the masses are incoming District Governer Al Hedstrom from Silverdale, and Council Chair Gary Reidel, who will give the keynote address at our 90th Birthday Celebration next month. The last image shows the newly inducted (at the convention) member of the Gig Harbor Lions, Sharon Kirry, having a little accident on Hospitality Night.
